    I see this flexible rubber side chute on the Toro WB mowers. Does it really work as easy as the video? I'd think over time it would start to rip if you run it up against trees and posts a lot?

    It should hold up better than metal. It's replaceable if it is torn. Every company seems to be going to rubber/plastic. Not sure it works like the video because I've never seen it but flexible chutes are the trend.

    I am not sure about over time but when I was getting used to the controls I banged it up against a few trees and its doing fine. I did take it off when i got the power chute so I can not comment on the longevity of it.

    I pushed it up against a tree trying to make a turn and it folded so much that the tip of the blade chewed it up, so I found an old metal exmark chute and replaced it.
